From the moment we booked our wedding right through to the day we checked out of the hotel every single member of staff & management we encountered were both friendly & courteous while always thoroughly professional. In the lead up to the day we were completely... More

We got married in the Lough Rea Hotel and Spa in March 2015 and we cannot thank John, Ruth, Rose, Mary and all the staff at the Lough Rea Hotel & Spa enough for giving us such a wonderful wedding day. From the moment we met with John, his friendly, helpful and professional manner instantly gave us such great confidence... More

We recently had the pleasure of staying the weekend at your hotel (Fri 17th-Sun 19th April). We stayed here last year for only one night and decided this time to go again and make the weekend out of it. From the time we got there until the time we left we had a truly amazing time. The staff were all... More

I stayed here with my family for 2 nights. On arrival the staff on reception were very welcoming and friendly. Our room was amazing, it was a family room at the front of the hotel above the main entrance with a great view of the lake (yes you can see the car park too but that didn't bother us!) Breakfast...

This review will be a bit of a mixed review and I will start with what can be improved and what we enjoyed... I would visit a number of spas and hotels throughout the year and last month my travels brought me to the south of Ireland to Slieve Russell where I had a great experience, therefore it tempted me...

The highlight of this hotel is the rooftop bar.....friendly staff who make great and reasonable cocktails. The room is nicely decorated but I was disappointed by the facilities in the room. This hotel is meant to be a four star. There was only one shampoo and one shower gel, no shower cap, not even the usual pen and writing pad.... More

Stayed here recently after seeing an offer on Lidlbreaks. It was excellent value for what it was. The location was lovely, it was easy to find. Checked in and got a Cappacino in the bar before heading across to the thermal suite and spa. I had booked in for the Plasir d'arome facial and had complimentary use of the the... More

Loved our stay here. Hotel was moderately busy (stayed Holy Thursday). Food was delicious, Spa facilities fabulous and bedrooms clean and luxurious. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back! Another bonus was both the Play Adventure Centre (2 mins) and Turoe Pet Farm (10 mins) down the road!
